FiPy , connecting to Orange LTE-M (France) , any informations ? [Solved]
Hi all ,
I just receive a SIM for Orange LTE-M network.
Want to try it with a Fipy working on LoRa for the moment .
The firmware is nearly up to date:
(sysname='FiPy', nodename='FiPy', release='1.18.1.r10', version='v1.8.6-849-d53c7f3 on 2019-01-10', machine='FiPy with ESP32', lorawan='1.0.2', sigfox='1.0.1', pybytes='0.9.5')
lte.imei() return is ok , but lte.iccid() return nothing , is there special information to get connected ?
try a cap command and it returns:
== CAPS config ============================= .Lock UE on SRV band : false .MFBI support : true .TM8 TDD support : false ============================================ == CAPS ==================================== . access stratum: R13 . catM : 1 . nb-IoT : 0 -- EUTRA bands -- . supported : 66/28/26/25/20/19/18/17/14/13/12/8/5/4/3/2/1 . board : 1/2/3/4/5/8/12/13/14/17/18/19/20/25/26/28/66 . admin : . pending admin : -- EUTRA carriers -- . admin : . pending admin : ============================================ OK
my showphy give that:
DL SYNCHRO STATISTICS ===================== Synchro state : OFF PPU SIB1 ACQ watchdog : 0 Frequency Hypothesis RF (Hz) : 0 RSRP (dBm) : 0.00 RSRQ (dB) : 0.00 Channel estimation state (Cell-spec.) : LOW CINR Channel estimation state (UE-spec.) : LOW CINR Channel estimation state (MBSFN) : LOW CINR Channel estimation CINR : 0.00 Channel length : SHORT AGC AGC RX gain (dB) : 0.00 RX PSD BO (dBFs) : 0.00 RX PSD (dBm) : 0.00 Noise level RS (dBm) : 0.00 Digital gain (dB) : 0.00 CINR RS (dB) : 0.00 NARROWBANDS Last DL NB : 0 Last UL NB : 0 AFC Frequency offset RF (Hz) : 0 Frequency offset BB (Hz) : 0 PBCH MIB received quantity : 0 MIB timeout quantity : 0
any suggestion ?
husiast/hobbyst it's impossible
Thanks for your help. I have also asked ThingsMobile. No agreement with Orange yet as far as LTE-M is concerned.
Have a nice summer.

@Bruno Same here in Poland with Orange - just pilot projects and closed tests with LTE-M enabled on chosen BTS stations. :/ For now - if you're regular enthusiast/hobbyst it's impossible to try it out.
@stef Good evening Stef, i guess you've already got an answer. By the way, a simple question : how did you manage to get your Orange SimCard ? I'm quite enthusiastic to test LTE-M but can't find a way to in France.
Have a pleasant evening.
for those who need the informations:
orange LTE-M is b20 (800Mhz) with apn=orange.ltem.spec
got this on cops:
>>> print(lte.send_at_cmd('AT+COPS=?')) +COPS: (2,"Orange F","Orange F","20801",7),,(0,1,2,3,4),(0,1,2)
working fine with lte.attach(band=20,apn="orange.ltem.spec")
the very first connexion was verrrryyyyyy long .... after that all is ok , even when Fipy is powered/unpowered.
